Living in moderation

My lesson today is about living mindfully. How quickly I feel out of balance when I don't practice being present to my needs. There's no question that we live in a society today that is fast pace but I can't blame it on that. Having a muscle condition called "FMS" forces me to evaluate every choice I make. When I overdo it, my muscles go in to a flare-up, it then becomes difficult to sleep and I have no energy. I'm not complaining. I've had this condition for a long time and have made friends with it. 

I'm pretty sure that I've always had an addictive personality. In the past, I prided myself on being a great multi-tasker. I could shove a lot of activity into a day. I've since learned from the slogan "Easy Does It". That means slowing down and taking time to smell the roses.

Affirmations help to change old patterns of thinking by replacing it with something new.  

"I am present to my life"
